Ending Summer Hunger; I Can For Kids:
I Can For Kids, a Calgary-based not-for-profit that provides meals for school-age children
during their summer vacation. For more than 3,000 low-income kids in Calgary, the meal
they are given at school through subsidized nutrition programs may be their only meal of
the day. Most of the children who depend on these programs during the school year don’t
have access to those meals during the summer vacation, and teachers see the effects of
hunger when the kids start new grades in September.
